Mitterberg circular hike

Open
The 4.7 km long hike runs mostly through the wonderfully fragrant Mitterberg forest in the Zirbitzkogel-Grebenzen Nature Park.
This route offers the perfect opportunity to get to know the landscape around Zeutschach better. There are also fantastic viewing points to linger. There are also some sections of the path away from the busy road, far into the forest areas. In this regard, you can really enjoy the nature of the Murau region here.
